The annual Pittsburgh Arts Festival took place a few weeks ago. Especially exciting was the grand re-opening of the Fountain at Point State Park, a city icon that has been turned off for renovation for four (!) years. To commemorate, the city set up a special beacon-like set of lights, illuminating the fountain from one of the prominent buildings downtown. It was incredible--I couldn't possibly do it justice. I had trouble deciding on what to focus on, how to expose, etc. But I like some of these. I'm hoping for suggestions for improving (either things I could have done at the time or for PP). Overall I think this was a neat scene and I like the composition but I'm not so sure about actual "quality" with the wide range of light/dark involved. I have a LR4 and the Nik plugins available. Some of these look "overcooked" when I tried messing with LR levels--even though for some (esp the last one) I think they look a little neat that way. Shot these all with the 20mm and my Hexanon 57.
